    i wonder where that ranks in number of fans to the rest of baseball? I'd like to believe the reds are top 10 in terms of number of fans

    21 mil, I'm shocked it's that low, I would of guessed at least 100 mil. During the Olympics I searched many Countries to check the population.

    Why/how are you a Reds fan? And how popular is baseball/softball in the "Land Down Under"?
    Always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand.

    It isn't easy to migraite here, we have strict immigration rules.

    Baseball isn't that popular

    I'm a fan because i was watching a game once and the reds were playing and although they lost they grabbed my interest in the sport and as a team.

    How long ago was that (the Reds game that grabbed your interest)?
    Great having you as a fellow Reds fan!
    Is Cricket the most popular sport in Australia?
    I'm a big college basketball fan also, and I know a lot of Aussies are coming here to play college basketball.

    Book it, Cueto will be the first to 16 wins.
    There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.

    Bobby Ojeda saying the key was how aggressive the Red's were, swinging early and often, not letting Dickey control the game. Rare kudos to Brooke Jakoby.

    Collins saying the bracelet issue was not instigated by Baker but came from the umps. Baseball in the age of Bud lite. In the meantime Leake's necklace flying all over the place.

    Collins saying Leake pounds the strike zoan, changes speeds, gets the ball and throws it. Seems so simple.

    Ojeda says Mets were passive and were taking pitches and Leake took advantage by throwing strikes.

    Crazy random factoid: The Reds are now 27-8 in their last 35 games. With a five-game losing streak thrown in! Amazing. Hold on. I need to double check those numbers. Yep. In their last 35 games the Reds have winning streaks of 10, 6, 5 and 5.

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
